Mixing texture and latex

Hello, i am wanting to paint my finished basement ceiling and walls..... i want to know what you think about mixing texture paint with a latex paint or even just primer....maybe like a 2 to 1 ratio....just to help make it go longer....and if i use a semigloss... would i lose it in the texure when i mix it?? thankyou rayray4881

Some add paint to their texture but not that much. If you add that much paint the texture will be lighter but other than that it would be ok. Save your semi-gloss it would get lost in the texture and you would still need to prime before enamel would hold its' sheen.

interior surface

i'm not certain--is there a compound that when added to texture makes it flexible enough for a motor home? motion and cracking is my biggest worry.

Elastromeric paint depending on how it is applied may provide a light texture.
What are you wanting to texture or fix on your motor home?

The box stores have textured paint that is tintable.
